STOP BUDGET CUTS THAT AFFECT YOUR COMMUNITY!!!

Stop the budget disaster that is coming to California. According to the California Budget Project the rich pay 7.5% of their income while the poorest pay 11%.

Now that the special election isn't happening, we are facing 28 billion in cuts. The cuts that were proposed before:$1.7 billion from the phase-out of redevelopment agencies, $1.7 billion in MediCal reductions, $1.5 billion in cuts to the CalWORKs Program, $1.0 billion in reductions to the University of California and California State University, and $1.0 billion from the diversion of Proposition 10 funds

Brown's Plan: http://www.cbp.org/pdfs/2011/110203_chartbook.pdf when he assumed the special election would happen.

These are the cuts are the tip of the ice burg because they assumed the special election passed. Now it hasn't and we are facing a dire situation! $28 billion is roughly 34% of last years budget and will affect everyone.

We don't need budget cuts; the possibility of California’s wealth and prosperity is endless, but as long as these programs that don’t address the real issues of wealth displacement in CA, the possibility of a flourishing California is going to fade farther and farther away. We need fair and balanced plan that has a positive outcome for the majority of Californians.

Wisconsin and Egypt have shown the way. Change only comes from the voices of the people. All you need to do is show your support and solidarity for the your fellow working citizens. Come occupy the state building to demand a just budget that serves everyone, and stand in solidarity with citizens in the Midwest getting stripped of their rights!!!


What you can do to make a contribution (show your solidarity even if you can’t make it):

-Post this fb page link on every prominent Civil Rights, Human Rights, Pro-Choice, Pro-Labor, Pro-Education and socially active website you can possibly post on (including the facebook pages of The Nation, Common Dreams, US Uncut, etc.)
-Post flyers around school campuses and call into radio stations all weekend to spread the word.
-Come out on Monday and stand for the working class and students of California.
- The California Teachers Association is planning on bringing 300, which is good start. But we need thousands.


Bring:
1. Sleeping bag
2. Dried food
3. Musical Instruments (I am bringing my trombone!)
4. Extra Clothes
5. Signs
6. And most important: Your Spirit!
(7. Bring a friend!)

See you there!
